Pretty Powerful Palettes: The Hot Beauty Items This Holiday Season

Makeup palettes are the LBD [little black dress] of your cosmetic bag; the go-to collection of day or night beauty. Not sure where to start? First decide your makeup look; are you all about the DRAMA, sophistication or a simple day look?

Makeup For Dummies

 Simple Beauty Math: 1 base colour (lid) + 1 contour colour (crease) + 1 liner (lashline) = Gorgeous!

 Drama Beauty Math: 1 base colour (lid) + 1 contour colour (crease) + 1 liner (lashline) + 1 Highlight (tearduct and brow bone) = STUNNING!

 Note: Base colours tend to be lighter/brighter. Crease shades are darker/dramatic and liners either match the crease colour or tend to be even darker. [email me if you don’t know what a highlight is]

 *Tip: Inspire from that celeb everyone says you look like! Tape a magazine page onto your mirror and refer to the picture as you apply your makeup.

 Find cosmetic palettes overwhelming? Just because your palette has twelve colours doesn’t mean you need to wear all twelve; in fact, please don’t. Eye makeup should never exceed five colours or three for the novice; and don’t forget to blend, Blenderella, blend!

 

Stila Eye for Color Eye Shadow Palette

Features 13 new, ultra-wearable eye shadow shades for endless, easy to-create looks. This compact version is perfect for the on-the-go Stila girl and is an amazing steal-a (get it? Stila Steal-a...?) !


Urban Decay Book of Shadows

 Included are 2 pencils which can double as a great base for eyeshadow! Filling in your entire lid with eyeliner adds depth and longevity to your eyeshadow. The creamy consistency of the Urban Decay eyeliners makes the application tug-free on the delicate eye area.

Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland 

A perfect palette to begin your fairytale evening! Included are 15 high-pigment shadows, an anti-crease shadow primer, and beautiful shades of gloss, blush, and bronzer to create a range of versatile looks fit for a fairy princess. AND three ‘Get the look’ instruction cards!  

Overwhelmed with the plethora of colour before you? Decide on your colour theme before you dive in brush first!

 

 

 

Sephora Colour Play 5-in-1 Holiday Palette

 For the makeup maven or aspiring beauty queen! Each of the five palettes is packaged within the colour range that compliments each other so no colour confusion here!

  *Don’t be a hot mess, apply eye makeup using Shadow Shields which catches all the flakes!

 

 ** Cosmetic palettes make great gifts! No guess work as most colours will suit all skin tones and personal style.

 If you have a makeup maven to buy for where the last thing she needs is another palette then you may want to suggest some light reading?


 WWD 100 Years 100 Designers: A compilation detailing designers and their creations. 

 Hint: I have lots of makeup... but not this book... yet.

Thanks All for reading.

Although these palettes were out for the December holiday season - I believe a few have been added to the lines permanently. Palette beauty tips work for all palettes, not just the seasonal ones!

Feel free to post your own 2 cents/tips into the comments too. Always happy to see others creative input!

Hey Anon!

You are right! I think most of these have become permanent to the collections! And you are right again - the tips are great for any palette!

Thanks!
